Lindsay Lohan has joked on Twitter about an indefinable accent she adopted in a recently surfaced video clip from last month’s opening of her new nightclub.

“What should I call my new accent? I’m thinking #LILOHAN,” she wrote.

A 32-second news clip shot at the Oct. 15 opening of Lohan, an Athens nightclub in which she is a partner with Greek restaurateur Dennis Papageorgiou, shows the 30-year-old “Mean Girls” star commenting on the need to help people whether through refugee camps, nightclubs or spas. She slips into the accent in addition to speaking a smattering of French.

“It’s a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn,” Lohan, originally of Cold Spring Harbor and Merrick, told the DailyMail.com, an affiliate of the British tabloid the Daily Mail. She explained, “I’ve been learning different languages since I was a child. I’m fluent in English and French, can understand Russian and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic.”

Pivoting from her tweet that suggested naming the accent after herself, she told the website she would prefer to “let the people decide” what to call it.

She added that she opened the club because, “Whereas in the past I’ve been associated with nightclubs and clubbing, I said why not do my own and make it a good place. Where there’s bad things happening in the world, we can focus on the bad things and fix them with the club; we can create charity with the club.”

The London-based actress also clarified her relationship with Papageorgiou, whom tabloids have described as her boyfriend after her breakup with Russian heir Egor Tarabasov. “My first time coming to Athens with Dennis, my friend, and that’s all he is my friend and business partner! But his mother became a very close person to me and his sister as well.”
